Wanting to volunteer to test-build GMP on Mac OS X?

Dear Torbjorn,

I am most happy to know I can be of use. It is an honor.

My machine is a Core 2 Duo Macbook, which however is not set up to do tests
automatically. I would like to set this up. I have some command of
bash-shellscripting, but I believe that what I need is a new cron job, and
unfortunately I have no idea whatsoever how to add a new job.

Also, what is meant by "let them report to you, not directly to us?". And in
what style would a report be?

Meanwhile, I have ftp 'ed all GMP 5.0.0 nightly snapshots from the link
provided, and am ready to build them. What flags should I pass to
./configure ? As it is, for all previous builds I used --prefix=<customdir>
--enable-cxx --enable-shared --host=x86_64-apple-darwin10.
2.0 --build=x86_64-apple-darwin10.2.0 --target=x86_64-apple-darwin10.2.0 .
(x86_64-apple-darwin10.2.0 is present because Snow Leopard's kernel is not
64-bit, but the hardware is, as is every process running on it. The command
uname on Snow Leopard returns i386 despite being in fact x86_64.)

I hope that these questions are not too much of a bother to answer, and
please know that I am very willing to help in Mac OS X testing.
